SUMMIT 2017: FIRST OFFICIAL PITCH TO OUR FRIENDS AND PARTNERS
So what’s it like to pitch to a full room of people? Our participants found out at our annual Summit Event on Friday, 6 January at the dffb. Our participants presented their projects in their current development state and received feedback from our core tutors and partners: Frank Spotnitz, Ben Harris and Luke Franklin (Big Light Productions), Roberto Amoroso (Sky Italia), Olivier Bibas (Atlantique Productions), Piodor Gustafsson (Another Park Films), Henning Kamm (Real Film), Nicola Lusuardi, Amandine Maudet (Vivendi), Christian Rank (TV 2 Danmark), Philipp Steffens (RTL), Vinca Wiedemann (Den Danske Filmskole), Dan Lawson (The London Film Schhol), Jan Bennemann and Klaus Zimmermann (Dynamic Television), Ben Gibson and Kathrin Osterndorff (dffb).
The projects of our participants span a wide range of genres this year, from comedies and dramedies to historical action adventure and period drama to hard-boiled police procedurals and political dramas to spy thrillers and supernatural horror. An exciting mix! Thank you to our friends and partners for their support and feedback! Our participants came out of the event with a lot more ideas and inspiration. Next stop: the pilot screenplay.
